Opening to embodied love is like allowing a warm smooth dagger to pierce us in our most hidden places, freeing what has been wedged in the deep recesses of the history of our bodies, emotions, and spirits...Loss of embodied love is like allowing the winds to blow into the raw and unfettered places newly carved by the Beloved's hand...To lean into Embodied Love is to lean into the cycle of death and life fully, to say YES fully to both, to call on the steadfast courage of being unmade and remade, and to offer oneself FULLY to the fire of the initiation that is DUALITY. This is the pain and the pleasure of laying our souls down upon the ground of the body. This is the arrival upon the shore, strong with the muscles of our long swim, and soft with the tenderness of being salted down to our pure core. The memory of Stillness holds us steadfast to the course. The desire to experience, taste, and touch unity in our cells drives us with intensity to break the ground and become a Force of Form. These two~ the Eternal Calm and the Lightning of Passion~ are not at war with one another. They are in DEEP, REVERENTIAL LOVE with each other. They are bowing back and forth to each other in each, and every moment. ~
Unity consciousness cannot occur in any attempt to escape Duality. It is only by surrendering fully to both the agony and the ecstasy of Duality that we can accomplish the initiation that is underway, leaving behind only the BIG FAT ILLUSION that there is anything that does not belong HERE. What fears it does not belong suffers and magnifies suffering in the whole system which rejects it. What knows it belongs does not escape pain or pleasure, but is *free from suffering*, free to exist and co-exist, to be impressed upon and to impress upon, to be created and to create, within this Dual Universe Structure we have committed to inhabiting for as long as it takes to emerge from the Initiation as One Rainbow Village of harmonic diversity, fully on board.
